Producing Human Tissue In Space

On 6 March at 11:50 PM EST, the International Space Station resupply mission Space X CRS-20 took off from Cape Canaveral (USA). On board: 250 test tubes from the University of Zurich containing adult human stem cells.

NASA astronauts (from left) Christina Koch, Jessica Meir and Andrew Morgan peer through the International Space Station's "window to the world," the cupola.

NASA astronaut Christina Koch is set to return to Earth on Thursday, Feb. 6, after 328 days living and working aboard the International Space Station.

Space Selfie by Jessica Meir

NASA astronaut Jessica Meir takes an out-of-this-world "space-selfie" during a spacewalk she conducted with NASA astronaut Christina Koch (out of frame) to install new lithium-ion batteries that store and distribute power collected from solar arrays on the station's Port-6 truss structure.

The six-member Expedition 61 crew is gathered together inside the Zvezda service module for a New Year's Eve meal.

NASA astronauts (left to right) Christina Koch and Jessica Meir harvested Mizuna mustard greens on Thanksgiving day inside the ESA (European Space Agency) laboratory module's VEGGIE facility.

The Space Station has grown to the size of a football field and space agencies are looking to extend its lifetime until 2030.

New Space Station Life Support System

In October the International Space Station was even more busy than usual with nine astronauts living and working in humankind's outpost in Earth orbit.

Russian Cargo Droid Docks With The ISS

Traveling approximately 260 miles over the Yellow Sea east of Shanghai, the automated Russian Progress 74 cargo resupply spacecraft docked at 5:35 a.m. EST to the Pirs docking compartment on the Russian segment of the International Space Station.

Astronaut Luca Parmitano Upgrades AMS

ESA astronaut Luca Parmitano, attached to the Canadarm2 robotic arm, carries the new thermal pump system that was installed on the Alpha Magnetic Spectrometer (AMS).

Astronaut Luca Controls A Rover On Earth

ESA astronaut Luca Parmitano has made robotics history, reaching out from the International Space Station in orbit around Earth at 8 km/s, to control an Earth-based rover, equipped with an advanced gripper possessing the equivalent mobility and dexterity of a human hand.

Video: Expedition 61 Thanksgiving Message

Right now, half of the crew members on board the International Space Station are American astronauts who are getting ready to celebrate Thanksgiving, and they have a message for us.

ESA astronaut Luca Parmitano is pictured attached to the Canadarm2 robotic arm during the first spacewalk to repair the Alpha Magnetic Spectrometer, the International Space Station's cosmic particle detector.

A new solar power generator prototype developed by Ben-Gurion University of the Negev (BGU) and research teams in the United States, will be deployed on the first 2020 NASA flight launch to the International Space Station.

Using ISS As A Mars Transit Analog

Human research on the International Space Station (ISS) crew has made significant advances in understanding of the effects of physiology on human health in space missions. However, ISS has not been as suitable for research on other hazards of human spaceflight such as isolation and communications delay.

The Expedition 61 crew explored how microgravity is affecting a variety of biological processes in humans and microbes today. Two astronauts are also gearing up for tentatively planned spacewalks to repair a cosmic particle detector.

Andrew Morgan's Space Selfie

NASA astronaut Andrew Morgan takes an out-of-this-world "space-selfie" during a spacewalk to upgrade International Space Station power systems on the Port- 6 (P6) truss structure.

Florida Seen From Orbit

Nick Hague @AstroHague "From only a few hundred miles up, you can see an entire state. The human footprint fades and the blue, and turquoise waters around Florida draw you in. Here is where we will launch ourselves to the Moon during #Artemis, as we continue to explore the mysteries of our universe."
